User reviews from travellers who booked a bus ticket from Lisbon to Faro
Ratings and Reviews (30)
Overall the bus ride was smooth and the driver was nice, the only thing I have to complain about was that the radio music was a bit too loud, which was a bit uncomfortable because wage passengers are tired and want to get some sleep on the ride to Faro (the bus ride was a 12:15am). I think that if the bus had no music then the passengers would feel more comfortable and sleep better.
Having missed my flight from uk to faro, the airline rebooked me to go to lisbon and spend the night there. Had to catch the bus to faro. New to the country and the booking was so easy. Luckily the driver spoke English so it was an easy ride!! The service and the ride was excellent. Highly recommended!!!
Connecting bus number was changed without informing passengers resulting in us missing the bus and having to pay for another ticket to get to Faro via a much slower route. Bus drivers kept redirecting us to another booth when we asked them.
The bus turned up and left late. We had to get off at an earlier stop and get a taxi to make sure we would catch our flighy. If we stayed on the full journey we would have been so late we would have missed our flight.
